  • Barry Bonds drops lawsuit against SF Chronicle reporters

    Barry Bonds dropped his lawsuit against two San Francisco Chronicle reporters who published a book claiming the San Francisco Giants slugger used steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds requested that San Francisco County Superior Court dismiss the lawsuit June 2, according to court records reviewed by the San Jose Mercury News. The suit was dismissed without prejudice, meaning he retains the right to refile it. In March, Bonds sued Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams, publisher Gotham books, the Chronicle and Sports Illustrated, which published an excerpt of the book, "Game of Shadows." Bonds' lawyers, suing under California's unfair...

    Barry Bonds was up to his swollen neck in steroid use, as an excerpt from "Game of Shadows" reveals in riveting detail in Sports Illustrated. Bonds was a walking laboratory of performance-enhancing drugs, according to the two San Francisco Chronicle reporters who have confirmed what has been an open secret for years. The depth of their reporting is so persuasive that Bonds would be wise not to try to spin it with the race card, the martyr card, the victim card or any other card that is deployed to silence the questioner. He would be wise not to address it...

    PHOENIX -- In the end, there is only one question that needs to be asked: Do you believe Barry Bonds, or the book? If you believe Bonds, then you believe the third-leading home run hitter in the history of Major League Baseball is the victim of an unrelenting federal and media conspiracy designed to frame him for the use of performance-enhancing drugs. If you believe the excerpts of "Game of Shadows," then you believe that Bonds and his mind-boggling, bloated numbers of 1998-2004 (he missed most of last season with an injury) are a fraud. I believe the book. I...

    by Mark Finkelstein March 8, 2006 Bear with me. It's something of a slow news day. No Matt Lauer offering a 'he-set-me-up' defense for a lefty schoolteacher. Not even a Katie Couric plumping for more post-Katrina public housing. But perhaps, in a small way, an insight into how little hosts on the major morning news shows know about . . . the news. All the shows ran segments this morning about a new book, 'Game of Shadows', by San Francisco Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams. With a release timed to coincide with the beginning of the baseball season,...

    NEW YORK (SI.com) -- Beginning in 1998 with injections in his buttocks of Winstrol, a powerful steroid, Barry Bonds took a wide array of performance-enhancing drugs over at least five seasons in a massive doping regimen that grew more sophisticated as the years went on, according to Game of Shadows, a book written by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters at the forefront of reporting on the BALCO steroid distribution scandal. (An excerpt of Game of Shadows that details Bonds' steroid use appears exclusively in the March 13 issue of Sports Illustrated, which is available on newsstands beginning on Wednesday. The...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A new book about Barry Bonds says he used steroids for at least five seasons, casting new doubts about the baseball superstar's exploits as he seeks to pass Babe Ruth for second place on the all-time home run list. The book "Game of Shadows", an excerpt of which was on the "Sports Illustrated" Web site on Tuesday, said the San Francisco Giants outfielder took steroids via injections, pills, creams and liquid starting in 1998. His most productive seasons followed while he was in his mid-to-late 30s, most notably in 2001 when he hit a single-season record...

Bonds, who testified before a San Francisco federal grand jury looking into steroid use by top athletes, repeatedly has denied using performance-enhancing drugs.
